The Congregation of Our Lady of Fidelity is a Roman-Catholic female congregation founded in 1831 a La Délivrande (Normandy) by Henriette le Forestier d'Osseville and having for its primary object the sheltering and education of orphan girls.

In 1848 the sisters established an orphanage and school in Upper Norwood, the first catholic orphanage in England.
